    Supercomputer Models One Second Of Human Brain Activity - Telegraph

    Link: Supercomputer models one second of human brain activity - Telegraph

    ...Researchers used the K computer in Japan, currently the fourth most powerful in the world, to simulate human brain activity. The computer has 705,024 processor cores and 1.4 million GB of RAM, but still took 40 minutes to crunch the data for just one second of brain activity...
    The computer took 40 minutes to simulate 1% of the activity that a human brain undertakes in 1 second. Some way to go before computers are thinking for themselves.
